Dynamic Dreamer ~ Art Weaver

The Ghostly, Mythic, Tarot & Fairy Tale musings of Lisa Hunt

Winged Enchantment work-in-progress, Victoria’s Adventure and what the kids are doing.

| July 1, 2013

Winged Enchantment series is more like a fine artist’s dream than a rushed illustrator’s pile of worries. After what seems like a lifetime of one endless deadline, I am finally realizing the pure joy of doing art without thinking much beyond a day in the life with my paintbrush…

Hope Springs Eternal & Thoughts On Success – Part 2

| March 2, 2012

This week, I am grateful to have both new and old friends share their thoughts about how they define success. A few of these participants I’ve known for many, many years. They are testament to my growth as I am of theirs, having watched each other travel the bumpy roads that make our individual successes authentic and hard earned…

Chronicles of Connor Part 3

| August 6, 2010

As the summer vacation winds down, so will Connor’s long drawing sessions in the studio. I don’t teach Connor how to draw–he just sits at his desk and lets bustling creative ideas flood onto paper. He is insatiable with paper and pencil. Once in a blue moon he’ll ask me a question such as “Mom, how do you draw a woman (cyborg influence, of course)?” or “Mom, how do you show a spaceship from the underside as it stretches into a blackhole?”…

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. My 9 year old’s triumphant move into my studio or The Chronicles of Connor part 1.

| January 30, 2010

I have grown accustomed to working alone in my studio (thus the name “Studio Hermit”), with only the company of NPR, music, and Timmy the cat aka “Studio Buddy” being the potential distractions to an otherwise intense environment. It never dawned on me to ask my 9 year-old artistically inclined son to join me in my sanctuary of creative outpourings…

Art Feeding Art and the Power of Creating for Others

| January 9, 2010

It’s hard to believe that 2010 is here and my 43rd birthday is fast approaching. Yes, I too ask myself the perennial cliché question: where did the time go? If it wasn’t for my art, I’m quite sure I would have a hard time determining how I’ve spent the last year (or my life, for that matter). My paintings have always been my personal timeline—they document my own journey in a way that reflects my thoughts, feelings, observations, cognitive and soulful responses and evolution as an individual

Bird Shapeshifters: venturing back from wence I came

| December 8, 2009

After 20 years of publishing intensity, I’ve taken a break from contracted assignments to work on my own material, unheeded by deadlines, dimensions, or other technical considerations. This does not mean I’m abandoning my identity as an illustrator/writer–I still have plenty more to do/explore in print publishing. I needed to refresh myself- and flex some creative muscle that was lying languid since the completion of the monumental Fairy Tale Tarot project…

Art Show Extravaganza!

| October 10, 2009

I’m proud to announce my participation in two upcoming art show events, one to be held in New York City and the other right here in South florida…

In the throes of an intense painting season (with “studio buddy” at my side)

| October 1, 2009

It has been a while since I’ve written a life-as-an-artist post. The past few months have been a flurry of The Fairy Tale Tarot promotion (something that has been a fun experience!), getting kids ready for another school year, tying up long neglected loose ends including painting bookshelves, purging clutter and prepping seedlings for the […]

Fairy tale news, goodies and upcoming giveaways!

| August 19, 2009

First of all, thank you Aeclectic Tarot for making The Fairy Tale Tarot the “Tarot Deck of the Week”! …

Seeing The Fairy Tale Tarot kit for the first time: a peak experience!

| July 24, 2009

Life has peak experiences, though these monumental events are surely infrequent. And for me, one of those celebratory moments was delivered to my front door via a fed ex box…
